Chelsea Clinton planning to stay on at NBC; insiders, critics wonder why
By Jo Piazza

Being the daughter of a former President and the current Secretary of State certainly has its perks.
Despite poor marks for her reportorial performance it looks like Chelsea Clinton is preparing to renew her contract with NBC News.
According to insiders familiar with negotiations, the Stamford and Columbia graduate is poised to extend her contract with the network to work on special segments for the shows Rock Center and Nightly News, a move that has media watchers confused.
She has done a bunch of warm and fuzzy stories that havent gotten any kind of critical appreciation but she does have that Clinton name, US Weekly senior television editor April Bernard told Fox411. Critics say she doesnt dig deeply enough as a reporter. She is amateurish and green. She also isnt charismatic on camera which is surprising because her dad is so appealing. It is just hard to watch her and know she is there because of who she is.
If its hard for the audience, it is even harder on some NBC veterans.

Webb Hubbell, appealing? I think not.
“It’s hard to watch her...”
No kiddin news department.
Like mother, like daughter. Boring, uncharismatic and overrated.
Does anybody proofread anymore?
She didn’t graduate from “Stamford”. Stamford is a city in Connecticut. She graduated from “Stanford”.
“Chelsea Clinton planning to stay on at NBC; insiders, critics wonder why” She did the SAME thing to the NBC/GE Suits that Monica did to her “daddy”. Webb Hubbell would be SO proud!
Hard to watch doesn't even begin to describe it!
Go Cal !!
Cognitive disassociation on her abilities/appeal?
Why? Because she's being groomed for an inevitable Senate run, like her mother was.
Standards in TV journOlista’s? ROFL. She’s a Democrat shill like the rest of ‘em.
Didn’t anyone have the sense to give her a DESK JOB
Promote her to “VP of investigative research and idea development for community outreach”
Like Michelle Obama’s old job at the hospital (that has remaned vacant since she left)
Stamford and sons?
“She didnt graduate from Stamford.”
Stamford is where they tape the “Maury” show, where that burning question “Who da baby daddy?” finally gets answered via paternity testing.
I would LOVE to see Chelsea, Bill, and Webb’s DNA sample on that show.
(From the eyes down, pure Webb Hubbell...)
Does anyone actually watch NBC?
I wonder how her husband’s hedgefund launch is going. Dad and Mom will no doubt “encourage” folks to invest.
GE, GE and GE.
Follow the money.
I tried watching Chelsea’s debut online. For a moment it really wasn’t too bad thanks to a bit of colorful graphics. Alas, the video stopped loading and the episode was just too boring to tolerate so I left the site.
From what I remember of the commentary at the time from other students at Stanford; she rarely attended classes, spent much of her time travelling, overseas and getting gutter crawling drunk. Many of those interviewed at the time said they couldn’t figure out how she passed any of her classes much less graduate. Her degrees were a sham, the same as her “scholarship”.
Well, maybe if your thing happens to be upper middle-aged sex perverts with bulbous noses who sound like they have chronic sinus conditions.
The OWS idiots won’t diss her, she’s one of them and they are one with her. Most of them are also spoiled little rich kids who sneak away to shower, eat, and get more money from their wealthy socialist democrat parents.
That’s funny. I was going to say she’s following in Barbara Walters knee steps.
Freepers, on the other hand, know exactly why.
The MSM is just a paid talent pool for the DNC.
Lost an election? Waiting to run? Need a paycheck? No problem, come grab a desk at the MSM until you sort it out.
Good for her,she is a good little Communist I am sure her Commie parents are very proud...She belong with a loser net work with the losers that work there.
Outsiders assume it is repayment of Presidential favors.
Like Michelle Obamas old job at the hospital (that has remained vacant since she left)
If I recall correctly...early in the 2008 presidential campaign, Michelle's old hospital position was ABOLISHED by the hospital.
It’s hard for anyone to watch because of her looks. I remember a time when one had to have good looks to be on T.V. And I liked that time.
Chelsea Hubble planning to stay on at NBC; insiders, critics wonder why FOX ^
They are so creepy, they are dead ringers for each other.
If Chelsea works hard at NBC, in forty years she might develop into a more annoying, even homelier version of Andrea Mitchell.
That rotten apple didn’t fall far from the tree.
E-Gad! She’s a hillbilly, inbred looking thing.
That’s exactly what I was thinking.
It’s a good gig if you can get it.
Any samples of Chelsea’s work on the airwaves?
Missing a chromosome or two, no doubt. Or fell off the White House lawn swing. Amy Carter! Yikes!!
My Eyes, what the hell is wrong with you posting that withut a warning.
She’d be prettier if she put on some makeup and did something with her hair and clothes (and I say this as a female - sometimes you have to make an effort!). But Amy has always been flakey and clearly likes to do her own thing.
She’s on the board of an internet company for $300k a year.
I’m not kidding!
“...because her dad is so appealing.”
Must be a media “elite” East Coast thing, becasue NO ONE I know finds the serial rapist “appealing” on ANY level.
An oily, corrupt criminal of limited intelligence who lies reflexively at the level of a 7 year old.
Stanford...Palo Alto...Chelsea's alma mater
Hillbillies as rule are very socially conservative and go to church...especially in the South
why not smear some group not on our side?
300,000 per year is one helluva board fee
i have had the opportunity to sit on local bank boards
12-15,000 per year..
NewsCorp pays 120,000 per year and grants the occasional deferred options
so I guess 300,000 is possible..at the high end...amazing
Chelsea likes the income and the family has the connections. This is called cronyism, nothing more, nothinge less. It would be interesting to know how much she makes as a journalist.
“If I recall correctly...early in the 2008 presidential campaign, Michelle’s old hospital position was ABOLISHED by the hospital.”
Because no one met the unique qualifications of the talentless, racist, entitlement queen who formerly held the “job”?
Apparently money can buy more things than most of us realize. Sometime in the 1980s one of Savannah’s crookedest lawyers tried to extort money from my mother. This behavior on his part wasn’t particularly shocking but while we were in his office the door opened and this big, fat, moronic looking guy walked in. I didn’t pay him too much attention until the lawyer said, “And look! My son little Joey is now a lawyer too and in practice with me!”. My brother and I gaped in astonishment. We had both gone to school with and played with this guy as a kid. He was beyond stupid and I always thought borderline retarded. I didn’t think he had even finished high school. The money and complete disregard for laws and school policies it must have taken to make this cretin a lawyer still boggles my mind.
It’s good to be queen, ‘er princess.
